Hello everyone,

So for the March AOEM meet:

Seeing as we've been talking about the state of disrepair at Donington for a while I reckon attending the official fund raising day is a good way to show and give our support to our local world famous racetrack The huge response to what has happened at the track recently means that the Wheatcroft family are in full support of this and along with the Donington staff are gonna do all they can to make this day a success and save the track. There will be a whole load of other car clubs there along with an autojumble, access to the musuem exhibits, a fun fair for the little 'uns and food/ drink

The date is the Sunday 7th of March 2010, we will need to get there soon after 8AM so you will need to congregate at Donington Park services for 7.45AM. There will be no entry fee but a fee of £5 will be needed if you want to nose around the museum, donations will also be accepted on the day.

The official website for the save donington campaign is here. You can sign a guest book on the site and also join their facebook group. Have a read to get an idea of what theyre trying to do

EDIT 16/02/2010: Having been in touch with the organisers we will be able to take 50 cars to make up the Alfaowner stand Any others above this number should still RSVP yes and hopefully on the day we can have a go at squeezing them in to the stand. We will be the best represented car club there thanks to you lot

The address for the event will be:

Donington Park,
Castle Donington,
Derby,
DE74 2RP

EDIT 19/02/2010 I would like to form a convoy of most of the attending cars from the Donington Park Services to travel to Donington track. This will not only enable easier show parking but will also look So if you could congregate there before setting off that would be great, myself or someone nominated will then lead the convoy to the parking area. YOU WILL NEED TO BE AT THE SERVICES FOR 7.45AM TO CONVOY TO THE CIRCUIT AT AROUND 8AM

The address for the services is:

J23a M1
Castle Donington
Derby
DE74 2TN

This should be a great day and for great cause so lets get a healthy AO contingent to show off our gorgeous cars

If it means just to get a place in the 'show' area I have to polish me pipes......I'm not sure I'm up for that!!! But perhaps as I appear to have quite a rare coloured bella, it might be worth a quick spit n polish

you to

funnily enough, i saw you yesterday in the pics from the epsom day thought i recognised you, took a few mins for it to click

if the weather clears and i get the engine/'box back in the sud then it will give it a nice run out, but more likely the 156 again due to me very much doubting the british weather

will be good to show support to donington though, it's the only track around for the best viewing

really hope it does get saved

To be honest I hadn't realised the connection of the two days in that respect, now that's spooky........
